This shipping crate sideboard (below) has been blogged about for years. I’ve never heard anything more about it. It doesn’t appear that it has ever been reproduced. Too bad. I love it. According to Design Squish it was designed by Linda Jose.I just recently stumbled upon the up-cycled milk crate sideboard (below) on the Desire to Inspire blog. I would style it to be lighter and brighter than it is styled here but I love the concept. It doesn’t look the the milk crates hold anything which is too bad but it is a nice conversation piece and a handy sideboard.
The best discovery from searching around for up-cycled milk crate furniture is that I stumbled upon Combo Colab and their XTOOL (below). You must watch their kickstarter campaign video. Their campaign is fully funded and is now closed. I LOVE this simple design. Great colors too. I’d love to have one of these as a side table or put two together to act as a coffee table. I hope they become available for purchase sometime soon.
And don’t even get me started on their truck-a-float project.
